Detroit River Days – Adventure Park

Presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resorts, this year marks the 13th annual weekend-long festival, and it’s getting a bit of a makeover as it relocates to Detroit’s West Riverfront Park.

The spotlight will be on Motown, as it celebrates 60 years as a homegrown, worldwide institution with performances by the legendary Smokey Robinson, and R&B favorites Brandy, Brian McKnight, Carl Thomas and Faith Evans. The festival also will feature more than 120 mobile eateries during the “World’s Largest Food Truck Rally,” and visitors will be amazed and delighted with an air show by the Tuskegee Airmen and awesome jet ski demonstrations on the Detroit River.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. New to River Days this year, the adventure park includes a zip line, mini carnival, inflatable obstacle courses and bounce houses, miniature golf, inflatable sports games and more! Tickets start at just $1.

Detroit River Days runs from Friday-Sunday, June 21-23. It’s open Friday from 2-10 p.m., with free admission before 5 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and admission is just $5 and includes a $3 food truck coupon for use at any truck.
